Adult Nonfiction PQ4315.2 .P27 2002
Summary: Michael Palma's Inferno has rendered the poem into contemporary verse while maintaining Dante's original triple rhyme scheme, recreating inferno in all its dimensions, without emphasizing some aspects over others. It aims to recreate the pleasure of the experience of reading the original while maintaining a strict level of textual accuracy. The result is a translation that may be appreciated by scholars and general readers for its literal faithfulness and poetic form. The translation is accompanied by facing-page Italian and by explanatory notes.
